US Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham tweeted Monday morning that he had just spoken with President Trump, who he said "sounds terrific– very engaged and ready to get back to work!"
Graham said the President is "very excited" about Judge Amy Coney Barrett's impending Supreme Court confirmation process, as well as "focused on a good deal to help stimulate the economy," reports the CNN.
This comes as Graham continues to press forward with Barrett's confirmation ahead of Election Day, despite two Republican members of his committee testing positive for the coronavirus in the past week.
On a new stimulus bill, although House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin remain engaged in negotiations over a new stimulus package, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said on Fox Monday, "there are still some major differences" between the sides.
President Trump has been pushing for a deal via Twitter as he remains hospitalised for the virus.
